Robots are autonomous or semi-autonomous machines meaning that they can act independently of external commands. Artificial intelligence is software that learns and self-improves.In some cases, robots make use of artificial intelligence to improve their autonomous functions by learning. However it is also common for robots to be designed with no capability to self-improve.
The combination of robots and artificial intelligence is a significant area of research. Many of the things that robots commonly need to do such as process visual information is best solved with self-learning software. Robot enthusiasts also may envision a superintelligence that takes a physical form.Robots with artificial intelligence are potentially an existential risk due to their physical nature and ability to change and rapidly improve without human direction or control.
This is the complete list of articles we have written about artificial intelligence.
